Enoshima in Sagami Province, is a woodblock print by the Japanese ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai. It was published sometime between 1829 and 1833 in the late Edo period as the 27th print in Hokusai's series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji. Enoshima is a small island lying off Kamakura on the Pacific coast south of Tokyo. It attracted large numbers of pilgrims, who visited a temple there that was dedicated to Benzaiten, the Buddhist female deity of long life, good fortune, and victory in war. Seen from a high position on the mainland, Hokusai depicts the island’s large temple compound. Fuji balances the composition on the right. Read more.
